Can You Give a Mezuzah to a Non-Jew?

17.10.17

Question

Is it permissible to give a Non-Jew a kosher Mezuzah so he may affix it on the front door of his home?

 

Answer

Hello,
If a non-Jew asks a Jew for a mezuzah so he may affix it on his front door, the Jew is forbidden from doing so. However, if there is a concern that the non-Jew would harm the Jew as a result, this would be permissible.
